    Tracking stumbleupon stumbles.


    I have read about the benefits of stumbling websites and have the tool bar needed and registered my site with stumbleupon. O started off stumbling my own site from the main stumbleupon site a week ago. Then joined a stumbling exchange were you stumble other sites in exchange for someone stumbling you site. According to the work I have done in my account this is going ok but in my SBI traffic stats I can't tell if this doing me any good. I am looking in the referrers information. Please tell me what to look for.

    I set clicktracks to look for any referrer with *stumbleupon.com*.

    We break them out as a separate label and can then see which pages on our site are pulling the traffic.

    We don't do anything to get stumbled but get thousands of visitors per month from that source - sometimes thousands per day if one of our pages makes a featured page at SU.

    "benefits of stumbling websites" the benefit is short lived and the traffic doesnot converts very well.
